Christian McCaffrey came to the defense of his wife, Olivia Culpo, after a style influencer labeled her Dolce & Gabbana wedding dress as ‘nothing’ and the ‘absence of personality.’

The NFL star, 28 – who tied the knot with the former Miss Universe winner, 32, over the weekend in Rhode Island – jumped to the comment section of Kennedy Bingham’s Instagram video on Tuesday where she shared her opinion of the gown.

‘What an evil thing to post online,’ the San Francisco 49ers running back penned. ‘I hope you can find joy and peace in the world, the way my beautiful wife does.’

However, Bingham responded to the sports star and typed, ‘@christianmccaffrey So what’s evil is pointing out the potential internalized misogyny behind her reasoning…’

‘Your (imo) patriarchal comment, and the racist/ homophobic/fatphobic history of the designers she worked with?’

In the comment section of the same reel uploaded to the influencer’s TikTok page, Olivia herself shared her thoughts, also clapping back at Kennedy’s criticism. 

‘Wow what an absolutely evil person you are. I hope no one ever tears you apart in this way because it’s extremely hurtful. I love this dress and it was everything I ever wanted and more,’ the model penned. 

Bingham uploaded a screenshot of Culpo’s response to her own Instagram stories, as well as her reply. 

‘So we aren’t going to acknowledge how your words come across to other people or the background of the designers that you’re supporting?’ 

Kennedy also wrote additional text over the image and added, ‘Why do they keep using the word evil.’

‘Like D&G calling IVF babies synthetic wasn’t evil enough for you, but me talking about your wedding dress crosses the line?’ the influencer asked.  

The media personality – who currently boasts nearly 100k followers – kicked off the nearly six-minute clip by saying, ‘I have been a bridal creator for almost four years now, and I have never said this before. But I do not like this wedding dress.’ 

She explained that if she were just looking at the dress, ‘I would see a beautiful bride and a beautiful, simple, elegant dress.’

However, Bingham added, ‘But it’s the stuff surrounding the dress that leaves kind of a bitter after taste.’

Kennedy then referenced to Olivia’s recent interview with Vogue where she talked about the wedding gown, and explained she ‘didn’t want it to exude sex in any way, shape, or form.’ 

‘There is nothing wrong with wanting a modest wedding dress, or just modest attire in general,’ she continued, but then added Culpo ‘pushed this idea of what she thinks all brides should look like.’

‘…So to treat this as a sexless design is really odd to me because both, it is your choice if you do not want to exude sex in this gown, but also if people want to sexualize you, it is not your fault if they do that.’

‘Her two statements next to each other are a very eloquent way of saying you are asking for whatever you are dressed as, which is an extremely harmful way of thinking.’

Bingham then said she felt it was ‘weird’ how Culpo ‘talks about coverage, especially as someone in her day-to-day life is someone who is not exactly a modest dresser.’

‘She even says her husband thinks she’s the most beautiful when she is timeless, covered and elegant. I just think the usage of the word “covered” is so icky because you are not covered in day-to-day life.’

‘And also why is he thinking that you are the most beautiful when you are covered? That’s just such an odd thing,’ Kennedy said.

'And also why is he thinking that you ate the most beautiful when you are covered? That's just such an odd thing,' Kennedy said; seen in May in NYC

She also said it was ‘odd’ for Culpo to market a ‘conservative agenda’ and began to direct attention back to the wedding gown. 

‘There is no personality in this dress,’ and added, ‘This is just nothing. It is the absence of personality. 

In conclusion, Kennedy said, ‘It’s very clear this was not a wedding. This was a conservative campaign, and it wasn’t even well done…’ 

While talking with Vogue, Olivia opened up about her nuptials as well as her wedding gown designed by Italian brand, Dolce & Gabbana. ‘I had a very clear idea of what I wanted for my ceremony dress.’ 

‘I have worked with Dolce & Gabbana for years, so it was incredibly special to collaborate with Stefano [Gabbana], Domenico [Dolce], and the exceptional design and atelier team.’ 

The crepe ball gown contained long sleeves, a full skirt, a train and also a row of buttons on the back that secured the dress. 

A 16-foot sheer veil was added on top of her head to complete the look and had an embroidered, lace trim. 

‘I didn’t want it to exude sex in any way, shape, or form,’ Culpo said of the wedding dress. ‘I wanted it to feel effortless and as if it’s complementing me, not overpowering me. There’s so much beauty and simplicity.’
